CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): "Thinking is more interesting than knowing, but less interesting than looking." That's what the German writer Goethe said back in the 19th century, and it's especially true for you now. Here's a corollary that's true only for you in the next two weeks: "Thinking is more useful than knowing, but less useful than looking." In other words, Capricorn, gathering facts and being an expert should be your lowest priority in the coming days. Questioning and analyzing should be moderately important. But the activity you should emphasize most is seeing into the heart of the world around you with compassionate, penetrating objectivity.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You have the keys to doors that don't exist yet; save those keys. You know the titles for stories that haven't happened yet; write those titles down. You've caught glimpses of your future, but they're confusing because you can't imagine how you'll get to that future; imprint those glimpses on your memory. In conclusion, Aquarius, shout "hallelujah" and pour yourself a glass of champagne. You have all you need to cultivate a potent kind of faith that's based on hard data, not hopes and wishes.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In addition to meditations on the cosmic omens, my preparations for writing this horoscope were extensive. I read Milton's Paradise Lost, and the sequel, Paradise Regained. I ate both gourmet organic meals and greasy junk food. I rode the roller coaster with my scholarly friend Arthur, with whom I discussed the kabbalah, and watched horror films in the basement apartment of my smart but degenerate friend Rocky, who's writing a novel about his past life as a queer pirate in a 17th-century anarchist community in Barbados. In other words, Pisces, to work myself into the right frame of mind to channel your oracle, I had to soar to the transcendent heights and plunge into the grungy depthssort of like what you'll be doing this week.
